I wasn't expecting this shed to be great quality - at £427 it's priced at the lower end. Even so the poor quality came as an unpleasant surprise.
Suffice to say that as I was buying from a reputable company like B & Q I expected it to be fit for purpose without having to spend another £160 to make it serviceable.
FRAME AND WALLS
The wood used in construction is so lightweight that it brought back memories of the balsa wood we used to make gliders in my childhood. With the exception of the floor, all panels of this shed were able to be lifted in one hand - great if you're a glider, not so much if you're a shed. The wood quality is poor and cut so thin that many off the knots are cracked right through. (see photos)
The frame of the shed is roughly cut timber as expected. However, there is rough cut and there is ROUGH CUT. Some of it looks like a toddler's first attempt at paper cutting with safety scissors. (see photos)
The battens used to construct the floor (and roof supports) are not sturdy. I acknowledge that this info is contained in the components section which I didn't check. However, it would never have occurred to me that anyone would consider 28mm timber to be acceptable for floor supports, particularly as there were so few of them.
The shed has a window so it wasnt necessary to see daylight through gaps in the floor. These had to be filled in.
Finally, the windows, blatantly misrepresented as being 7mm thick. Made of thin plastic, similar to the thickness of a takeaway food container these could be easily accessed with a Stanley knife.
I will be replacing this with sheet perspex.
In summary, I would not recommend buying this shed unless you want an expensive masterclass in problem solving. Timber lining the inside of this shed was a necessity not just to make it reasonably weatherproof but also sturdy enough to cope with UK wind without folding.
